The idea of this is better than the execution. There’s maybe too much going on? I like the sleeves. A lot. But the sleeves are not getting their moment because of everything that’s happening across the chest. All that ruching and the knot off to the side and even the asymmetrical neckline. So many details. Too many details. 

It looks better on a full-body shot but when she’s being photographed from the waist up, I feel like she’s overwhelmed. Like your impression is that it’s a mashup of lines and folds going in different directions. Not as polished as it could be. Especially with her hair down like that.
